Intermittent Terrible Facebook Speeds

Go to solution

This has been happening for a couple of weeks now, and only facebook is affected - at what seem random times of the day, page loads when on facebook take ages (manually refresehed after 1 minute and often still no joy) while pages on other websites load fine.

 

Is there a particular problem with Facebook when using infinity?

 

Thanks

Hi jimmy

 

The thing to remember is that many moons ago our internet speeds were quite slow and a lot of service providers like facebook relied on that fact. The bottleneck was the network infrastructure in front of the service. Now that Infinity has arrived, this has pushed the bottleneck to the door of the service providers. Some simply cannot cope with the bombardment of information requests.

 

Hope that helps

One thing you can try is to change the DNS on your PC networking settings to use Google IP address 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

The slow speed thing has not done it today - until now so I thought I'd check back.

 

Changed the DNS to the Google IP and it has fixed things instantly, thanks!
